This lighting fixture will update your existing vanity lighting. Very easy to install with two people and takes 3 candelabra (small base) light bulbs. NOTE: This cannot be hung with the lights facing downward since the light covers sit inside a grove. Since the lights face upward, it is a little darker when the lights are on, but I also use 40W bulbs instead of the max 60W bulb to conserve energy.

upon installing this light I noticed that the electrical wire leads coming form the light were alum. and not copper. this could be a major problem if installed with copper elect. lines. you should investigate b-4 purchasing this product.
Bought this to replace a theatre dressing type light. It fits perfectly in the space that was avaible and adds a modern look. Very Happy with the quality of this light and how fast it was sent ot me.

We bought three of these lights (two 3-light bars and one 4-light bar) to update our master bath. (We replaced 1980s era vanity lights.) I had shopped for quite a while and was prepared to spend more money when I found these. We love the look of the lights. They definitely provided the updated look we wanted. Note that they don't come with bulbs. If you use the recommended 60-watt chandelier bulbs, they are VERY bright, at least if you have multiple bars like we do. That was quite an adjustment for us, but since the bathroom is rather dark, it's ultimately a plus. Nonetheless, we'll probably install a dimmer so that we can tone them down. Or you could use a lower wattage. My husband installed the lights and said that they were okay, but not the easiest installation he's done. He got all three installed in less than two hours, though. On the whole, a very good value for the money.
The unit looks great for my half bathroom, definitely modernized the look. Absolutely recommend, not too complicated to install. The price could have been cheaper though, unless you get a coupon then it is a great deal. I'm very happy with it.
The light fixture has substantive scale over large medicine cabinet. The glass is nicely frosted so light is distributed evenly. Negative is the wires are aluminum so make sure wire nut is well secured and use lower watt alternative bulb such as halogen or LED.
I purchased this because it matches the Vanity lights in my bathrooms. I am finishing my basement and was pleased to find the matching item. I love the design and have had no problems with my existing fixtures which are about 8 years old.
Bought both the 3 light and the 4 light for a larger bathroom. Love the 4 light especially. My hardware is brushed nickel and I found towel bars and hardware that complimented them. I went through probably 2000 lights before I came across these. Can be used in a minimalist decor or more fancy a la art deco.
Most important, as stated my another reviewer, this light can only be up facing. The glass covers sit securely inside their square holders, they are not screwed in. I put in 3 new LED 60 watt bulbs, that is what the fixture is rated to, because my wife uses this powder room for make up, it is bright as daylight in the windowless room. For those not requiring or wanting a very bright room I recommend a lower watt bulb or a dimmer switch. The wall plate was large enough to cover the existing hole for installation. I put this brushed nickel vanity light in a 36 inch wide power room after redoing the mirror, sink, counter, and fixtures. I needed up lights because my medicine cabinet opened into the previous, builder installed, down lit brass fixture. The light is as pictured, if you like the photo, you will like the light.
This light fixture is great in our master bathroom. We have over 100 inches long mirror and hung two of this light fixtures at each end. It looks great!! Contemporary is what you are looking for, this light fixture will be the one. Only minor thing is the size of the lighting fixture. Fixture is a slightly bigger than I pictured, but it is great lighting fixture for the buck! Base sockets are a bit cheap and loose, but light bulbs works! You will enjoy! My wife likes it! Installation is pretty easy. Don't forget the Type G candelabra bulbs. They are not included with the fixture.
